Reviews and quotes

'Never trust a man who, when left alone in a room with a tea cosy, doesn't try it on.' Billy Connolly
The School of Night is a collection of hard bardics extemporisers, originally convened by the late, great Ken Campbell. In the company's theatre shows, the rhapsodes create poetry and drama using ideas suggested by the audience. The result is an eccentric night of literary and theatrical celebration.
